Swimsuits and A Diet.

The two go hand in hand, don't they.
Since the weather is getting warmer, and Brett and I are taking a little vakay down to Cabo in a couple of weeks, I've been thinking about both.

I found this cute, inexpensive suit at Target, which will do the trick for our upcoming trip.
But I really have my eye on these...

I love this teal top from JCrew.
 I currently have an obsession with strips and this one piece from JCrew is just my style.
I'm in love with the yellow bow on this suit from Anthropologie.
It's from Anthropologie, enough said.

I've come to the conclusion that I need to cover up my middle and rear as best as possible since I have two young kids and the body to prove it. 
Plus when you're running down the beach after your two year old, the more you're covered up, the less the chance of something popping out that shouldn't be shown. 

Which leads me to thinking about a diet.
I've never been on a diet. I don't really like the idea of a diet. 
I think if you deprive yourself of what you really want you'll ultimately crave it so bad you'll overdue it. Diets are great for some people and really work, but I just don't think they are for me.
But the choices I make can be better.
If I want a cheeseburger, I don't have to go to In n Out to get one. I can make a turkey burger at home.
If I want something sweet, I don't have to eat half a cake. I can have some fruit with a little sugar sprinkled on top. 
Sure, I'm going to splurge now and again. I love food and I'm not going to sacrifice my love of food. I just need to make better decisions on my day to day choices.

I was hoping to be in better shape for our upcoming trip but with only a couple weeks left it's just not going to happen.
So I'm looking toward June 1st. 
That should give me enough time to get myself on track and maybe lose a couple of pounds along the way. 
And hopefully come summer, when I'm chasing kids down the beach, not too much will be flopping about.
